Why study Calculus ?

By Sen and Sokol


Calculus

CALCULUS

  • There are only

  • kinds of people in the world:

  • Those who know calculus and those who don’t.


Calculus1

CALCULUS

  • Is a branch of mathematics focused on

  • Limits

  • Functions

  • Derivatives

  • Integrals and

  • Infinite series


Calculus2

CALCULUS

  • …Is the study

  • Of

  • How

  • Things

  • Change


Calculus3

CALCULUS

  • Calculus has applications in

  • Science,

  • Economics,

  • And Engineering.

  • It can solve

  • Many problems

  • For which

  • Algebra alone

  • Is insufficient.


Calculus4

CALCULUS

  • Used in

  • Every branch of Physics,

  • Computer Science,

  • Statistics,

  • Engineering,

  • Economics,

  • Business,

  • Medicine,

  • Demography,

  • And in other fields,

  • Wherever a problem

  • Can be mathematically modelled,

  • and an optimal solution can be found.


Why study calculus

  • Applications of Differential

  • And Integral calculus

  • In Physics Science

  • Include

  • Computations involving

  • Velocity

  • And

  • Acceleration,

  • The slope of a curve

  • And

  • Optimization.


Why study calculus

  • Applications of Integral calculus

  • Include computations

  • Involving

  • Area,

  • Volume,

  • Arc length,

  • Centre of mass,

  • Work,

  • And pressure.


Why study calculus

  • In Business

  • Specialists look at

  • The Derivatives

  • Of Trends

  • That

  • Can help them

  • Predict

  • The Future

  • Of

  • The Stocks and Markets.


Why study calculus

  • Architects

  • Use

  • Optimization

  • To calculate

  • The best amount of material

  • They can get within

  • Their Budget

  • And

  • OptimalSpace in a Building

  • They are designing.


Why study calculus

  • Calculus

  • can be used

  • To compute

  • The Trajectory

  • Of a Shuttle.


Why study calculus

  • …Or

  • The amount of Snow

  • In the Driveway.


Why study calculus

  • …It can be used to calculate

  • The amount of Area taken up by

  • An irregularly shaped

  • Flower Bed

  • Or Swimming Pool

  • When

  • Designing

  • The Layout

  • Of

  • A Piece Of Property.


Why study calculus

  • In the World of

  • Medicine,

  • Calculus can be used

  • To find

  • The Optimal Branching Angle

  • Of

  • A Blood Vessel

  • So as

  • To Maximize Flow.


Why study calculus

  • In Nuclear Medicine,

  • It is used to build

  • Models of Radiation Which Targets

  • Tumor Cells.


Why study calculus

  • In Economics,

  • Calculus allows

  • The Determination

  • Of The MaximalProfit

  • By providing a Way

  • To Easily Calculate

  • Both

  • Marginal Cost

  • And

  • Marginal Revenue.
